My dear friends, I'm very happy to show you my first sampler, presented on Sampler & Antique Needlework Quarterly n° 66 Spring 2012, the last number of the magazine.
It is inspired by two separate antique samplers: one designed by a sweet child, Isabella Donald, and the other stitched in an old Kildare School... I have blended them in order to create something new but also something with a true ancient story.... Many thanks to my model stitcher Elisabetta.
